The home’s original built-ins include cherry wood cabinetry
This classic Craftsman bungalow can be found in northern Glendale, close to the Verdugo Wash, where it sits on a street lined with oak trees and vintage lampposts.
The house was built in 1923 and retains an array of original features, including an ornate front door with leaded glass details, built-in cherry wood bookshelves, and wall nooks. A gas fireplace in the living room is fronted by a wall of river rock.
Measuring in at 1,360 square feet, the home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. A formal dining room sits alongside the updated kitchen and opens directly to the backyard. The grassy yard can also be accessed via French doors in the breezy master bedroom.
Per the listing, newer upgrades include copper plumbing and a built-in sound system with speakers in every room.
The house sits on a 6,151-square-foot lot with a neatly manicured front lawn and a walkway leading up to the covered porch. In the back, a detached garage has room for two vehicles.
Last sold in 2001 (for $340,000), the home is asking $987,000.
